English term or phrase: started with a drink inside me
The last three times we have been out I have actually started (to push him, to see whether he will hit me)with a drink inside me.

contesto: donne che reagiscono a un nuovo parter con dinamiche relative a una relazione violenta vissuta in precedenza

questa frase vuol dire che lei aveva effettivamente bevuto o che si sentiva come se avesse bevuto?

grazie mille

avendo bevuto un drink.


Explanation:

Ciao Nicky


Explanation:
"a drink" no si limita ad uno solo - tu che stai beata a Londra non hai i corteggiatori in bombetta che ti dicono "Let's go for a drink" ma vogliono dire "scoliamoci tutta la birreria"?
E' il tipico understatement inglese.
"have one for me"
